    I'm moving my horse to a new barn for precisely this reason. So many people in my current barn are overhorsed and undertrained, it's become a safety risk for everyone. I can't fix "the problem"--...

    While that's true, it's not unique to dressage. It's not rare for pro jumper riders to have more than one horse in a class; it is rare for them to have the same quality of performance on both horses....

    Short answer for me: there's a lot of different ways to get in the 60s... not so much for the 90s.

    My gelding was an 8s-and-4s horse in the lower levels-- we were either brilliant or rubbish. I...

    Minor quibble. That article indicates that some earthquakes are linked to wastewater injection wells, not fracking. Two different mechanisms. The pressure induced on the formations by fracs is...

    This was a fun exercise in ascribing intent ("To up the dead cop numbers and fake them") that was not present in my post. Isn't that what you accuse others of doing?

    1) How do you look up a vague situation without a name, location, or date in public records?

    2) Ironically, 157 dead cops in the US every year... is actually true. 157 killed on duty? No. But...

    I was "trained" by a local show series to always check my scores-- all four tests were added up incorrectly. So I do a quick scan of the written scores and if things don't look like the final score,...

    How did you want people to respond when you "bwahahaha"-ed international scores in the 70-80+%? I get that you later recanted the "long learning curve" comment, but it's not like you came in here all...

    I can ride while stressed/crabby/worried (those are usually work-related), but I hold off on the training and focus on things I know we do well. It might be a ride out on the trails, or just...

    These are excellent stories, everyone. This mare is pretty special, I think. Some of that work ethic problem mentioned above can be an issue, but she says NO and then says OK and then finds all the...

    I haven't received one of those emails, but my iTunes account was used for fraud: someone bought ~20 iSomething products from a MacBook Air to multiple iPads and iPods on my account (which luckily...
  14. Success stories: "Aged" green horses in dressage

    COTH,

    One of my students has a lovely mare who, through no fault of her own, sat around and didn't do much for the first 12 years of her life. She's been under saddle about a year now and shows a...

    Even adorable puppies think that MSU is fated to win it all.

    If the pole is at the highest point, you probably aren't doing cavallettis properly.

    That's interesting, as I've heard jumping ability/talent is more heritable than dressage-- which I'm not alone in hearing, as the in-utero jumper foals seem to sell sooner than the dressage foals (as...

    It wasn't very effective. I got stuck in DFW for an extra 2 hours because my flight to my final destination embarked without me (after a 30min wait on the tarmac for a gate to be available).

    "Correct tempo" for a pony to get the schwung and expressiveness? Just a scosch slower than what you think is appropriate. Really challenge your pony to engage and carry rather than rely on his/her...

    Victory for MSU! I thought my bracket was dead but for now I'm in the top 3% of ESPN brackets. I'll drink to that.

    As broken as my shoulder, I'm afraid. I had Baylor in the Final Four and Iowa St in the Elite 8. I've bet dinner on this so I need the rest of my bracket to stay alive.

    Thanks guys. I'm going stir-crazy from not being able to do much with my (conveniently, dominant) right hand. Week 1: check.

    Except that it's not "just" Christians. There's antisemitic Muslims and atheists (famously, Voltaire) as well.

    To add to that... there is something insidious about hating Jews that seems to defy...
